Vignettes

Lately, I have noticed many bloggers sharing vignettes of spaces in their homes.  I am always intrigued by a vignette, aren’t you?  I think the visual appeal has one guessing as to what surrounds it as well as the angle it is shot at etc.  After all, a vignette can tell a visual story and is an art form in itself.  I also find them appealing, because I think some of the unique features of a room get lost sometimes and are much easier  to “read” in a small snapshot.  I believe this is why I am a big fan of Instagram, because it lets the eye focus on one shot, and not let the visual noise around it interfere with its beauty.

So, I thought it might be fun to share some vignettes found around my home.  Let me know what you think?

In cleaning my son’s room the other day, amongst the mess, I shot this side table vignette.  It gave me the visual fix I needed to power through the rest of the room! Doesn’t that always help;)

Here is my foyer chest of drawers and is the first thing you see when you enter my home.  I change it up frequently, but it almost always has some sort of fresh “something” on it.  Today it holds fresh white roses;)

I adore blue and white ware; always have and always will.  Even before it was the “thing”;). I love the traditional look and visual impact it has.  One can find a piece of blue and white “something” in almost every room in my home;)

And finally, my “Winter” mantle.  After the holidays I keep that winter “magic” alive by keeping some sparkle and warm texture (yarn garland) to the mantle. However, truth be told it is not up there anymore due to the “extreme” Winter we are having….frankly I am over it and it has lost its magic! I’m sure most of you agree;)!

So there you have it!  A few vignettes (isn’t that a fancy word;) around my home.  I hope you enjoyed them!
